This is a non-interference engine which means the valves will not be harmed by the pistons.

On a 2002 mits montero sport suv, is it "required" to change a timing belt every 60,000 miles?


No, consult you owners manual, most belts, timing belts are made of kevlar and last to about 80 to 110,000 miles, be very careful though to see if your engine is a zero clearance engine , meaning the pistions can contact the valves if they become out of time by a failed or sliipped timing belt, it is good to be on the safe side and inspect occasionally the belts, there should be a cover where you can see a section of the belt for inspection purposes, check the entire belt for missing teeth and or cracks and freying, if any of those are present change belt, if you have zero clearance motor failed timing belt can destroy thr top end of the motor causing a very expensive repair... 60,000 miles in on the safe side...

Lifter knocking on 1999 Nissan Frontier


red: there were two engines used in the1999 frontier.
The VG30 (V-6 )and the KA24DE (4- CYL)
If you have a V-6, there is no adjustment you can make on the valve clearances. They are hydraulic and self adjust. If they are noisy, you might try changing the oil and filter and using an oil additive designed for addressing high mileage motors with noisy lifters. Marvel Mystery oil actually works, but follow the instructions. MORE IS NOT BETTER!
The 4 Cly engine does not have adjustable valve clearances from the stand point of using a few wrenches, one to adjust and the other to lock the adjuster when the clearance is correct.
These valve clearances are set using shims which are "metal discs about the size of a quarter. They come in various thicknesses and based on the measurement between the base of the cam when the highest point of the lobe is facing the 12:00 position, you place a feeler gauge between the base of the cam and the top of the shim.
If it is too loose or too tight, you use your feeler gauges to find out what it would take to make a zero clearance situation. From there, you remove the shim, measure it. Based on your findings during your initial measurements, you can calculate whether you need to use a thicker or thinner shim.
So to answer your question: unless you have a lifter confused with some other component, there is no means of torquing a lifter down on either series engine which came in that truck.
Please let me know if I can help you further. There must be some reason why you have asked this question......?
